Rose Hill Flower Farm

Elizabeth Bryant is the organic flower grower extraordinaire at Rose Hill Flower Farm in West Linn. She came to visit in the studio last fall and we hit it off right away! I had prepared a long list of favorite plants and flowers and mentioned that it would be fantastic if she would be interested in growing some of them. This past season I was absolutely thrilled to work with the selection that she delivered weekly at the studio. We both are so passionate about our work and we can talk endlessly about flowers and plants. I was delighted to visit her farm this summer.
Here is a sample of her treasures: salpiglossis, nicotiana, several varieties of clematis, love-in-a-puff, cleome, ageratum, penstemon, salvia, abuliton, gloriosa lilies, chocolate cosmos,  allium, cerinthe, toadlilies, persian shield, nigella, many herbs and lots of fantastic texture… I cannot wait to see what she has in store for next year!

    Kasey, Elizabeth Bryant is a fabulous organic farmer! As I mentioned in the blog, we’ve become really good friends and it is so much fun to talk flowers with her and being able to ask a grower if she would be willing to grow some favorites! She definitely is someone to be included along with other growers for future meetings like the one at Leach Botanical Gardens earlier this month.

    I want to know where you get those crop cover support posts that are in your pictures? Did you make them or buy them? I am a flower farmer in Western Pennsylvania. Thanks
